Supreme Court Delivers Decision To MyPillow’s Mike Lindell

( – HAPPENING NOW: On the first day of its new term, the United States Supreme Court delivered bad news to Mike Lindell of MyPillow fame.

Lindell, one of the most ardent and vocal supporters of former President Donald Trump’s allegations that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from Trump by Democrats, lost his bid to have the Supreme Court stop a defamation lawsuit against Lindell by Dominion Voting Systems.

As CNBC notes in, “Supreme Court rejects Trump ally Mike Lindell’s appeal in 2020 election lawsuit”:

“The Supreme Court on Monday rejected MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s bid to fend off a defamation lawsuit the voting machine company Dominion Voting Systems filed over his far-fetched claims about the 2020 presidential election.

“The justices’ decision not to hear the case means a federal judge’s ruling in August 2021 that allowed the lawsuit to move forward remains in place.” [emphasis added]

As for what’s at the heart of the lawsuit:

Dominion sued Lindell and MyPillow in February 2021, claiming $1.3 billion in damages and alleging that Lindell purposely pushed the “big lie” that Trump won the 2020 election. Lindell repeatedly echoed baseless claims that Dominion’s machines manipulated vote counts to ensure that Joe Biden defeated Trump. The claims have been widely debunked. In the lawsuit, Dominion argues that Lindell knew his claims were false, while Lindell’s lawyers say he genuinely believes them.” [emphasis added]

With no other avenues open for an appeal, Lindell will have to stand trial unless he settles the case.
